“Beautiful Memorial”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

A very beautiful memorial to a man who lead this country in some of the roughest years in our history. This is laid out in a nice walking path with statues and fountains for a peaceful journey.

“Overlooked monument but a must see”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We've been to DC several times and have seen the Jefferson Memorial every time, but for some reason this is the first time we've seen the FDR Memorial. It's really good. And big - as in spread out. Lots of wonderful quotes and statuary. Places to sit. Right on the water. Just really nice. It's a bit of a walk around the basin, but the FDR lets you take a breather in the middle of that walk.

“Typical Monument”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Thought it was typical for a monument. Saw it during a moonlight tour and didn't feel the need to see it in the daylight as well. Glad I went.

“Amazing tribute to a very well deserving man!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I love the sounds of the water throughout the memorial, love the flow and highlights of FDRs life through time. Well done and not to be missed.
